Yesterday, after opening about 200 points higher, Nifty moved sideways in the first half of the trading session. However, it quickly succumbed to selling pressure and pared most of its gains to end just 25bps higher. During the day, it tested its 100-DMA (10,304) and failed to close above it. On the sectoral front, it was a mixed reaction. Nifty IT (+1.8%) and Nifty Pvt Bank (+1.3%) were the major advancers. On the flip side, Nifty Media (-1.7%) and Pharma (-1.4%) were the major decliners.
Historically, 100-DMA has been a crucial level to watch for Nifty. The confidence in the current rally will build up if Nifty is able to retake its 100-DMA. In addition, Nifty’s 50-DMA started to turn upward and the broader market participation in the rally is a good sign. We remain in a Confirmed Uptrend and are open to increasing risk selectively in quality names coming out of proper bases.
At the beginning of the move in the general market, there are usually a few stocks that have already completed bases and are breaking out. Often, these early leaders will cluster into groups that may represent where the most institutional appetite exists. Ideally, this is where we try to "buy right." There are a few things that work to our favor when we do this. One is that these primary leaders usually have bigger upside moves and will lead throughout a cycle. A second is that the cushion we gain as the trend progresses allows us to truly capitalize on the move. O'Neil has said that if you can get through the first correction you are in the driver's seat. That cushion from "buying right" allows for a clear head when determining if normal volatility is a threat to your position or not.
